Aughton and Ormskirk U3A
From: Tony Crimlisk, Aughton and Ormskirk U3A
(the name comes from Old Norse) is a market town in West Lancashire,
England, situated 13 miles north of the city of Liverpool and 9 miles
southeast of the seaside town of Southport. The Ormskirk parish church
of St Peter and St Paul is unique in that it has both a tower and a
spire at the same end of the building. Nearby Aughton is a village where
the U3A headquarters are located next to Christ Church, a late Victorian
building, situated at the highest point in West Lancashire.
Activities: The current magazine (June 2013) lists over ninety activities available to members; everything from Aerobics and Belly Dancing through to World Dance, Yoga and Zumba - with Computers, Dining, Guitars, Horse Riding, Musical Theatre (see banner above), Philosophy and Snooker somewhere in the middle!
Personal: For me the strength of our U3A lies not only in its vibrancy and the range of its activities, but more importantly with the social and individual support that it provides together with the opportunities for personal development and fulfillment amongst a group of like-minded friends.For more information go to: http://www.aughton-ormskirk-u3a.co.uk/
